Guided Math Activities For Place Value

It didn't take long for me to realize my students truly struggled with place value and comparing numbers.  So we have been hitting that concept hard the last few weeks.  My students require tasks to be broken down and using concrete manipulatives increases their understanding of concepts.  We started off simply building numbers to the tens and then the hundreds place.

Putting the charts in a sleeve protector increases the usage of the chart, plus the students could write the numbers on the chart with a vis a vis marker when they began adding "ten."

After modeling and moving past the "we do" stage, my students played a version of scoot in which stations with a card, base ten blocks and a recording sheet/whiteboard were used.  This allowed my paraprofessional and myself to give individualized feedback to each student as they completed tasks independently.  Getting up and moving was very motivating!  

Thank you for stopping by the Teacher Deals and Dollar Steals Blog today!  Don't forget all featured items are only $1.00 for a limited time.  

I would love to hear how you deepen your student's understanding of place value concepts!
